Answer

The parents can file a report with the local police stating the minor is a runaway (designated when the minor's whereabouts is unknown). Or if they know or believe they know where the minor is they file an "absentee minor" report and then request the court to have the minor returned to their custody. The judge will issue a requisition order, the police who have jurisdiction in the area where the minor is staying, will take said minor into custody and have them placed in a juvenile facility until a court hearing. Any adult who knowingly aids a minor who has left the home w/o parental consent, can be held criminally and civily responsible.

It is illegal for a 17 year old to run away in North Carolina. You have to be 18 years of age to move out of your parent's home.

North Carolina solders stood fast in a battle when the solders from other states ran away. After the battle, the North Carolina solders told them "You need to put some tar on your heels." After that, the other solders called the North Carolina solders, "Tar Heels."

Do the right thing. Go to North Carolina and face the music. Delaying it will not make it go away.

like 30mins away....where in the world did you get 30 minutes away? From what point to what point? lol.Anyways, the question is irrelevant as well, since North Carolina touches South Carolina on the border meaning, there is 0 feet between them. How long does it take to get from one state to the other is the same as asking: How long does it take me to walk over a line? ::sigh::

no the confederates are the south and the union is the north. Remember that South Carolina broke away from the Union. Then later when all the southerners broke away asap, they became known as the Confederacy (south) and what was left of the Union (north)

There is no specific law in the state of North Carolina concerning the runaway situation. There is no record of penalties for running away.
